UNMIK submits to PISG drafts for two ministries

All daily newspapers report that SRSG Søren Jessen-Petersen has submitted to Prime Minister Bajram Kosumi the draft for the creation of two new ministries – the Ministry of Order and the Ministry of Justice.

‘We have discussed this issue earlier, and today he has officially received the plan,’ said the UNMIK chief.
Koha Ditore quotes the SRSG as saying that the creation of the two ministries would resolve the problems with parallel intelligence services among some political parties in Kosovo. ‘What we need to do now is pledge that we will create an apolitical judicial system that will treat all Kosovo citizens equally,’ added Jessen-Petersen.

According to Zëri, the two new ministries are expected to be created by the end of the year. Until then, says the paper, Jessen-Petersen has called for a debate on all security issues, including parallel structures and the so-called intelligence services in the political parties.
